Hamersley Range

National Parks and Reserves

The Hamersley Range sits within one of Australia’s largest and most spectacular national parks – Karijini. Here, you can scale Mount Bruce, Western Australia’s second highest peak and explore the depths of 100-metre canyons, revealing four-billion years of the Earth’s history and some of the oldest rocks on the planet.

Flights to nearby Newman, Paraburdoo, Port Hedland and Karratha from Perth put you within two to four hours’ drive of the Hamersley Range and Karijini National Park. Guided tours also depart from Tom Price, Karratha and Port Hedland. Or, if you’re taking the road trip north from Perth, you’ll need to allow about three days – more if you plan to make it a more enriching journey.

Hidden within the range is nature’s very own playground, featuring natural waterslides and inviting pools, adrenalin-pumping climbing adventures and gentle bushwalks. And the real beauty of Karijini is that most of its amazing scenery is within easy reach.

Spend the night under a star-filled sky at one of Karijini’s camping facilities, well-equipped with toilets, benches and gas barbecues (camping fees apply), or seek a little more comfort in the accommodation options at Tom Price.

For more information on walking, sightseeing, camping, flora and fauna, stop by the Karijini Visitor Centre.
